Unfortunately this event has been cancelled, due to circumstances beyond our control with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Following the success of Oliver! and West Side Story, Buxton Opera House will once again be showcasing talented local performers in its production of Chicago.

Set in the 1920s, where criminals became celebrities for their crimes, two murderesses attempt to turn this media frenzy to their advantage.

Nightclub star Velma Kelly who is serving time for the murder of her husband and sister is staging her showbiz comeback. However, Velma’s plans of media domination face a threat when Roxie Hart, lands herself in jail and the spotlight after killing her lover.

Chicago is one of the longest-running productions in Broadway history and boasts some of the best-loved numbers including All That Jazz and Razzle Dazzle

This amateur production of Chicago is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD, a Concord Theatricals Company.

Help us put local talent on stage! 

Our community productions give young people the chance to work alongside our professional creative team and perform live on stage in Buxton.
